Description
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates, among molds for injection molding a material such as molten synthetic resins, to a slide core mold for injection molding synthetic resins, in which an undercut core for molding a depression or the like separately from a main molding in a peripheral edge lower portion of a molded article is slidably moved in and out of a side edge of a main core.

2. Description of the Prior Art

Generally, undercut molding for molding a depression and a cut separately from a main molding in a peripheral edge lower portion of a molded article should be performed by protruding an undercut core for molding an undercut portion into a recess of a core mold separately from a core mold which is a main body. Therefore, in the past, a slide core mold provided with a slide mechanism portion has been used in which when a mold is opened to remove a molded article, an undercut-portion molding core protruded into a recess of the molded article can be moved backward in association therewith so as to remove the molded article. In the past, the slide mechanism of the type as described is designed so that an undercut core and a slider block provided with an inclined hole are slidably provided on the side of a core mold, an inclined pin is provided at a corresponding position of a cavity mold corresponding to a position of said inclined hole, the slider block being moved forward and backward while being guided according to a degree of fitting of the inclined pin into the inclined hole.

However, in the conventional slide mechanism using the inclined pin and the inclined hole, the pin is caught so that it may not be fitted into the hole unless the angle of inclination thereof is precisely met the pin and the hole, and therefore, extremely high precision is required. In addition, the steps of manufacturing a mold increases thus making it difficult to manufacture a mold. Moreover, there gives rise to a problem in that where the width of the slider is large, a partial guide merely using two points on opposite sides of the slider is unstable, and therefore, it is necessary to increase the number of guiding inclined pins and to enlarge the diameter of the pin.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It is an object of the present invention to provide a slide core mold for injection molding which is simple in construction, less in the number of steps of manufacturing a mold, involves no trouble, can be operated positively, and can be freely applied even to a slide core having a large width.

A slide core mold for injection molding according to the present invention employs, in place of the conventional fitting sliding between an inclined pin and an inclined hole which requires a high precision, an inclined-surface sliding which is simple in construction, whereby the sliding is propelled by the joined pressing force thereof.

More specifically, an inclined surface formed with guide grooves in opposite sides thereof is provided in the back of a slider block provided on the side of a core mold, and a block body provided with a projection fitted into the guide groove and an inclined surface is projected at a corresponding position on the side of a cavity fitted into the core mold.

In addition, with respect to the reciprocating sliding of the slider block, a spring is disposed between the slider block and a stroke end so that forward movement thereof is positively effected by the pressing force of the inclined surface whereas the backward movement thereof is positively effected by the restoring force of the spring.

Accordingly, in the slide mechanism portion constructed as described above, the operation of opening and closing the cavity mold and the core mold is accomplished by being converted into a force at right angles to the inclined surface by the action of the inclined surface, and therefore, the pressing force caused by the inclined-surface joining is linked with the positive reciprocation of the slider block.

Moreover, since the shape of the propelling mechanism portion is simple, and therefore the number of steps of manufacturing a slide mechanism portion will suffice to be small, and even if the width of the slider block is large, the stable sliding effect can be secured by a single inclined surface.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1 is a longitudinal sectional side view of a slide core mold for injection molding according to the present invention in its parted state;

FIG. 2 is a longitudinal sectional side view in the fitted state thereof, FIGS. 2A and 2B respectively being enlarged views of portions A and B; and

FIG. 3 is a perspective view of a slider block and a projected block body showing the contacting and sliding state of a pressure receiving inclined surface of a slider block with respect to a pressing inclined surface of a projected block body.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

An embodiment of the present invention will be described hereinafter with reference to the drawings. Reference numeral 1 designates a core mold locking frame in which a core mold 3 provided with a guide hole 2 in a main end edge and constituting a convex-shaped molded article shape portion is fixedly fastened by a fastening member.

The core mold 3 is formed in its end edge with a fitting portion 41 into which is fitted an undercut core 4 for molding an undercut portion of a molded article, the undercut 4 being fitted into the fitting portion 41 when the core 4 is moved forward.

The rear end of the undercut 4 constitutes a fitting portion 41, and the undercut core 4 is inserted from the side and fitted into a slider block 42 with a slight clearance from an engaging groove 43 provided in the slider block 42, the undercut core 4 being mounted and fitted in the slider block 42.

It is noted that another method can be employed to mount the undercut core 4 on the slider block 42 and that the undercut core 4 may be of course molded integral with the slider block 42.

The slider block 42 is provided with a pressure receiving inclined surface 44 formed at the back thereof and is slidably mounted by a slider guide 7 on the locking frame 1. A pressing inclined surface 45 formed on the front portion of a block body 36 provided on a cavity mold locking frame 11 is pressed in contact with the pressure receiving inclined surface 44 of the slider block 42 so as to effect a reciprocating motion, forward and backward, according to engagement and disengagement of the locking frames 1 and 11 guided by the pressure receiving inclined surface 44 depending on the angle of inclination of the pressing inclined surface 45.

Reference numeral 6 designates guide grooves provided on opposite sides of the pressure receiving inclined surface 44, and guide projections 61 provided on the opposite sides of the pressing inclined surface 45 are fitted therein to guide the operation of the block.

The cavity mold locking frame 11 is provided with a guide pole 21 inserted and fitted into the guide hole 2, and a cavity mold 31 constituting a recess-shape molded article shape portion is fitted into the central portion and fixedly fastened by a fastening member.

Reference numeral 5 designates a nozzle touch of an injection molding machine, and a material injected from a nozzle is filled into the molded article shape cavity 33 and undercut space 35 through an injection hole 12 of the locking frame 11, and an injection hole 32 of a mold 31. Upon completion of molding, a molded article is removed by a pin projected from a projecting pin hole 34.

Since the apparatus of the present invention is constructed as described above, the operating mechanism portion of the slide core is simplified, the number of steps is small which is advantageous in terms of production. The operation is positive with less trouble, and the apparatus can be smoothly applied even to the slide core having a large width.
